Natsumatsuri Naniwa Kagami ("A Mirror of Osaka") in Lincoln Center 2004
"I remember watching this ancient Kabuki play, performed by this revered Japanese company in a tent in Lincoln Center, and feeling completely mesmerized. The production was highly stylized, entirely in Japanese, and totally thrilling. I loved getting a tangible sense of Theatre as a timeless and universal means of storytelling. And, also, the fight scenes rocked."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
